- A Partnership for Safe Chemical Weapons Destruction Explosive Destruction Technology at Blue Grass ACWA determined it was appropriate to direct Bechtel Parsons to move forward with process to select an EDT to destroy mustard projectiles at Blue Grass More than 15,000 155 mm mustard projectiles, with fewer than 200 in over-pack containers, along with two Department of Transportation, known as DOT, bottles containing mustard agent will be processed through the EDT PEO ACWA decision considerations included: Environmental Assessment and resulting Finding of No Significant Impact and stakeholder involvement BPBG awards a contract to UXB International in Nov 2013 for a Static Detonation Chamber. Design, permitting and preparation of Site Plan Safety Submission began with first UXB technical submittals in December 2013. 2
- A Partnership for Safe Chemical Weapons Destruction Public Involvement Participating in CAC/CDCAB Explosive Destruction Technology (EDT) Working Group meetings Information exchange important as EDT permitting, design maturity progresses Working group members and public will be kept informed as EDT moves forward 3 Members of the BGCAPP team met with CAC/CDCAB EDT Working Group members on March 4, 2014.

Schedule Title V Air Permit, Major Modification Explosive Destruction Technology regulatory permitting process (cont.)
- A Partnership for Safe Chemical Weapons Destruction Key Engineering attributes for permits Selected 30 percent design documents included in Request for Class 3 Modification to BGAD RCRA Hazardous Waste Permit Submission includes: Process flow diagrams Piping and instrument diagrams Mass and energy balance 30 percent design documents reviewed and updated as part of standard engineering processes Permit Modification Request updated once design is finalized 7
- A Partnership for Safe Chemical Weapons Destruction Explosive Destruction Technology Mass and Energy Balance 8 Mass and Energy Balance: The M&EBs are a summary of all the streams that enter, pass through, and leave the system. They must account for both mass flows and energy requirements. The M&EBs are included with the process flow diagrams and are the starting blocks for the preliminary design. They define not only the flow quantities, but also the temperature and pressures of the streams.
